Lemon Buckwheat Waffles

February 20, 2014

A part of me wants to talk about how I have writer’s block, but that’s boring.

A part of me wants to talk about my love of lemon, but that’s old news.

A part of me wants to talk about how I saw a man on the Subway eating a whole chicken with his hands, but that’s irrelevant.

A part of me wants to talk about how I’m kind of obsessed with these pictures, but that goes against my modest nature (ahem sarcasm)

A part of me wants to talk about how I attempted to photograph my latest oatmeal recipe before eating anything and the wicked witch of the west came out to play, but today we’re talking waffles.

A part of me wants to talk about how I wished you guys had voted for the oatmeal instead of the waffles in my Facebook and Twitter poll because I actually have something to write about the oatmeal, but you didn’t.

A part of me wants to talk about how I  would rather be watching The Real World right now, but….so shameful.

A part of me wants to talk about how awesome these Lemon Buckwheat Waffles are, but instead I talked about absolutely nothing.

    When I look for a new recipe on a weekly basis I always read the comments it helps me pick a recipe . While your waffles look amazing it’s hard to really know from the viewers how good they are . Sometimes they give you some tips of replacing some ingredients with other things , but then I come across some websites that they just talk about girls stuff or ramble , here I am scrolling down and wanted to find comment about the recipes but can’t find one about it !! they don’t make the recipes and it’s not really helping me picking out your recipe over another one . Anyway I will make your waffles and post a real comment maybe it will help someone , i love to hear comments of different cooks it makes a huge difference for trying a new recipe . I am an avide cook always wanted to cook different recipes with healthy ingredients . Can’t wait to try this one an post my comment tomorrow ….thank you

    I am allergic to coconuts so what can I replace coconut flour with that would be a better consistency.
    thank you

      Unfortunately it’s hard to find a perfect substitute for coconut flour. You could try almond meal, but I can’t promise they’ll turn out!

    Part of me wants to tell you that I love your FREAKIN FACE!! Another part of me wants to tell you that I don’t even like lemon, but I’m pretty sure you could talk me into one of these sugar dusted waffles. Part of me wants to know more about the chicken fingers man. Part of me wants to tell you that I’m sorry for getting so far behind in your posts. Part of me thinks you should know that I’m leaving you a good sized broccoli bomb right now instead of taking a nap. Part of me wants you to take pity on me and mail me cookies. 😉

    Oh well, a part of me wants waffles and is crying because she wants them now.
    Oh, kidding. “A part of me” is actually “my entire person”.

    Hi Davida! This is beyond odd….no wonder I couldn’t keep up with your posts 🙁 so sorry! For some reason, my feedly isn’t showing your recent posts and I just resolved it by adding the current feed/link again, it must have happened after you had a new site design. Yummmm, that’s some yummy looking waffles – I love a bit of tangy flavors from the waffles! I love the photos!

    No wonder you want to brag about the photos, they look absolutely amazing!

    I laughed at that random man in subway eating a whole chicken, what in the weird??

    Even though you talked about nothing, this was one of my favourite posts yet!! You talked about so much while talking about nothing at all- AWESOME!

    So awesome, that I want to make these immediately, but alas, no waffle iron. I really must just bite the bullet on that one!

      It’s kind of amazing how I basically said nothing in this post. Blogger fail lol

    Ahhh writer’s block….the bane of a blogger’s existence. It happens! Your rambling was entertaining though 🙂 And these pictures ARE incredible! The fact that those pancakes are lemon makes it even better!

    Hi Davida,
    Wow, you made me remember when I was little when my grandmother used to make buckwheat pancakes. I loved them but no one else in my family now does so I never make them. Maybe they’d go for the waffles?

      I hope so!!! I actually had banana chocolate chip buckwheat pancakes the other day and they were fabulous! I bet your family would totally gobble them up! I didn’t notice the buckwheat at all with the banana and chocolate 🙂
